Subject:Error when I run Kismet on Fedora Core 4

I think madwifi_ng driver is only supported in Kismet-newcore.

I use madwifi-cvs-20050814 and it works great for my card (Proxim b/g combo pcmcia card 8470-WD i think) and kismet

Just noticed have released madwifi-old-current.tar.gz - 28-Jan-2006 so will let you know how i get on with it.
